What the hell has happened to common sense and decency ?Why couldn't one of those officers haved checked the parents' i.d. an escorted them inside to see their kids graduate ?
This our way or no way or go directly to jail for questioning us policy is the reason people fear the cops,don't trust the cops and usually won't co-operate or help the cops.
The only time the cops are civil and decent to the average citizen is when they need a levy passed.The rest of the time they're policy is 'us against them"
There was no reason these folks shouldn't have be able to see their children graduate.They missed a once in a lifetime event and there's nothing right about that.
While I understand security measures are necessary these days the police can still use common sense and be civil to the people who pay them.

I agree 100% islandgrump !!!We owe a debt of respect and gratitude to all our vets past and present and that includes the many brave Native Americans who served to protect this nation and free others across the world.
The U.S.Govt.has cheated and broken every agreement they have made with the Native Americans and if anyone in this country is owed a damn thing it's them.
A memorial to their courage and sacrifice certainly isn't asking for or expecting to much and it would be an honor to donate to this most worthy and long over due project.

Fire the whole sorry bunch !!I recall hearing about this and I remember being very dismayed that an 11 year kid had been charged with rape.
Thank God there was never a rape !!But it sure begs the question ....."What the hell is wrong with the so called adults and alleged professional ???

I have to say I'm surprised that the Obama loving socialist media would print a story about how having a gun and being armed most likely saved a woman and her kids from serious harm or much worse.
I do however question why in the world this woman opened her door to anyone at 4am.Glad her kids weren't hurt and you can thank having a gun for that.
Every law abiding citizen should be armed and prepared to defend themselves,their families and property from the scum of society.

I have no idea what was said in this alleged threat but I guess we have to weigh every word we say especially on social media.
Just amazing how thin skinned and sensitive people have become.But on the other had people have also become rude,petty and just plain mean and think nothing of insulting or harassing anyone when they believe they can hide behind the computer.
You'de think so called adults would know better but apparently not.Just sad what to many people have become.
And we wonder what's wrong with the kids today ??!!

We need to get past this attitude that every wealthy person or business owner is greedy and always ready and willing to screw the working class.
Who do you think builds the plants,invests their money in equipment and materials,pays the federal,state and local taxes,wages and benefits and all other expenses involved in running a business.
Business is created to make a profit and there's nothing greedy or evil about that.You're not forced to work or stay at a job you're unhappy with.You're free to leave anytime.
Unions don't serve the work force the way they once did.In fact it seems they're more interested in serving their political masters these days .And we all know where politics leads.No greedy ass politician ever had the working persons best interest at heart !!
If the unions are such a great deal for working people then the unions need not fear right to work.Give workers a chance to make their own choice
No one should be forced to join any organization,pay dues if they don't feel it's in their best interest.Ask the younger union members at the G.E.plant in Warren how they feel about their union and their senior co-workers who voted their jobs away.
There's your typical case of pure greed."I got mine screw you fellow union member"

Those poor kids suffered the most terrible kinds of abuse and violence and we're to believe nobody saw anything,nobody heard anything and nobody knew or even suspected anything was wrong ?
I can understand the victims of this gutless coward being afraid to talk or tell anyone what was being done to them but with such severe injuries and the marks those beatings had to leave on Teddy I don't understand how any adult couldn't see or suspect something was terribly wrong.

“If you can get past the bad facts of this case, then you can see that Autumn’s death was most likely a tragic accident.”
WTF ?? strap this d-bag down on the table next to this baby killing pos is he truly believe this bastard deserves any mercy !!!!
I just wonder if that poor innocent baby was his child if he "could get past the bad facts of this case"I've never heard a more stupid,insulting dumbass statement in my life !!!!!!
Of course we are talking about a lawyer here !!!

The pastor asked the court for leniency, saying Cecil is “salvageablePastor with all due respect "You're either crazy,stupid or both'
And Mr Tareshawty since "He's not the monster the prosecuter has made him out to be I'm sure you won't mind him living with you and your family after he's been released from this outrageously short sentence....
If you have young children I'm sure you'll trust him around your kids because you're every bit as nuts as the pastor!!!!And to you your honor I'd like to know if these were your own family members this trash sexually abused for 10 years would you feel his sentence was enough time ?
The so called justice system doesn't seem to learn that you can not "salvage" what's completely rotten to the core!!!
“Some murderers don’t even get 10 to 15 years,” Tareshawty said.So what !!!There is nothing worse or more despicable than a child molester and the damage and harm they cause to the most innocent of victims.
Of course no one but a lawyer would dispute that !!Hang all child molesters and any scumbag who hurts innocent children!!!
